investigated. >>> incumbent senator scott brown of massachusetts who lost to elizabeth warren is calling on his republican party to move to the middle. >> we need to be a larger party. i'm a pro-choice moderate republican, there's a vanishing breed. you know that now. you've lost joe lieberman, richard lugar, kent conrad, me, olympia snowe. that group in the middle, it's vanishing and there are on both sides there are extremes as you all know kind of pushing back against the middle. i've always felt that that group in the middle is, quite frankly, the most powerful group because they're able to get to that 60-vote fleshhold and get things done so i'm hopeful we'll be a more tolerant, you know, open-minded party. >> there is speculation that brown could make another run for national if president obama names senator john kerry to his cabinet as a possible secretary of state or perhaps defense secretary. senator brown is also rumored to be a contender for massachusetts governor in 2014 but he insists his immediate future is focused outside of politics. >> my job is to make sure there is a smooth t

not only won, she won by 16 points. republican senator scott brown of massachusetts, who was so stuffed with hedge fund misunderstood that he burped credit default swaps. scott brown lost by a lot to the nation's foremost authority on the economic rights of the middle class. after marriage rights for same-sex couples were voted down in state after state after state for years, more than 30 times in a row, this year, all change in maine, they voted on marriage equality and they voted for it. in maryland, they voted on marriage equality and they voted for it. in minnesota, they were asked to vote against marriage equality, and minnesota refused to ban it. in washington state, the vote is not called yet. they are still counting the vote and we will be watching it closely, but if you are on the pro-gay right side in washington state, it should be noted that it is looking pretty good. in iowa, anti-gay activists were sure that they were going to turf out a judge for ruling in favor of marriage equality. they had done it before, to a bunch of other judges. they had been successful every time t
be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into the senate. i don't think that would be the worst thing in the world for the president, especially since we picked up seats this time around. scott brown, as a republican who may actually across the aisle, could actually serve as a useful political tool for the president. that will be interesting to watch. the other one, of course, is treasury secretary time geithner leaving. one of the outside names that's been floated is cheryl sandberg, coo of facebook. she's the first one and she's had a terrific choice. another name i haven't heard but my virginia centrist byas leads me to bring up is mark warner, senator from virginia, great businessman, has bipartisan appeal. i think he could be strong as well. the last one that's opening up is chief of staff, jennifer g n granholm apparently she is -- >> yes. >> apparently they really want to get her in in some position. >> more jenny g. >> the energy, cheerleading. >> unrelenting positive vibe and energy. >> for jenny g. >> i'd like to get rahm back. not a possibility. >> kerry
changes not just in terms of having a brown person on stage but really a cultural shift within the party and that includes being able to bargain and putting a plan on the table. >> it couldn't have gotten worse in january there will be more democratic members of the house of representatives. i don't see any reason for the president and the democrats not to wait until january on doing anything on this. i'm with you 1,000 percent on the off the cliff strategy. we have to get chris an off the cliff button >> here are two things that i would say. it is very interesting. fiscal cliff was a term coined by ben bernanke. and he was doing it to try to kick congress's butt to do something stimulative. but what has happened is if people think about it as a cliff, they don't understand that you can go off it. it is not just a slope. it is a little driveway, i think the rhetoric that has come out around it is bad for the negotiating position for the president because it makes seeming go off the cliff worse than what it is. >> down the slope a little bit. what will happen is if they do it on january 1
international union and senator brown on the new campaign for the middle class. paul ryan is finally speaking, and he's still in the bubble. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas. >> ohio state senator turner is here to respond. the petition to see seed is growing with speed. >> deep in the heart of texas! >> find out why i agree with rick perry. texas is not allowed to leave the union. thanks for watching. president obama came back to washington to fight for fair deal on taxes. today he called on his base. i love it. he went right to the folks who put him in the white house. president obama held his first official closed door meeting with groups from outside the white house. the invited guests were all leaders of labor organizations and progressive think tanks. compare this list to the guest list for tomorrow's meeting. 12 of the most powerful ceos in american business. this schedule was not a mistake. president obama was letting the middle class and the workers of this country know, you come first! aflcio president is confident the pr
brown of georgia. and on tuesday he won back his house seat, and therefore his place on the house science committee. there's no suspense about paul brown's re-election because he ran unopposed. but in a development worthy of national recognition, maybe a national round of applause, i need to tell you that nearly 4,000 of paul brown's constituents went in to the voting booth on tuesday, and decided that instead of just voting for unopposed paul brown, or instead of just not voting for anybody in that race, nearly 4,000 people in paul brown's district decided they would write in a worthy opponent for him. nearly 4,000 in his district went into the voting booth on tuesday and wrote in the name charles darwin. instead of voting for the evolution is lies from the pit of hill guy. which is maybe as good a reminder as we are ever going to get in this country that it is not just that when things seem dire that we should hope for improvement. sometimes even when things go great, good-bye todd akin. sometimes there is still room for yet more good news on top of something you already thought
race? it was a write-in after incumbent republican paul brown called evolution and the big bang theory, quote, lies straight from the pit of hell. brown did manage to beat darwin and all other challengers. that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> so last night on "politics nation," megan mccain spoke with reverend al sharpton about the direction of the gop and where she thinks the party went wrong. >> i think we haven't done a good job of reaching out to minorities, reaching out to women. i think gay marriage is an issue that's a generational issue that's quite clearly trending towards passing in all states in america. for whatever reason, this obsession with social issues is killing us. it was a very difficult night. that tweet i sent out was one of the most popular things i ever tweeted in the almost 2 1/2 years i've been on twitter. this is a very harsh reality that we're facing right now, but i'm not shocked or surprised. i knew this when my father lost. i've been sort of ost that sized for my party that i've discussed with you on this show before. i don't know what peop
was in the capital, with the protesters. sherrod brown, in ohio, turned his campaign over to the movement in that state to overturn their anti-labor law. and so, you really saw something begin a very long time ago. and there were a lot of people who were hard-pressed, who got engaged politically, in defense of their own labor rights a year and a half ago, and transitioned that into this campaign. now, the interesting thing that happened, in this campaign, is that mitt romney showed himself to be precisely the sort of person that they had been fighting. someone who was clearly committed to attacking unions, but also who was willing to say and do anything to win. and i cannot emphasize to you, not just in ohio, but in other states across the great industrial heartland, romney's comments saying that jeep was going to close and move to china, that scared is people? >> you heard that a lot in toledo last night? >> and it also woke a lot of people up. not just in toledo. in toledo, yes, ed, but also up in detroit. i heard it over in wisconsin. i think it's very important to realize, a lot of th
. >> sherrod brown in ohio, on his massive victory. >>> and righties continue to freak out over the death of traditional america? >> it's not a traditional america anymore. >> eugene robinson weighs in tonight. >> and with us tonight, folks, thanks for watching. the obama campaign has just released video of the president addressing his staff in chicago. he gets very emotional. it's remarkable video. we'll bring it in just a moment. president obama doesn't have a lot of time to bask in his electoral victory. the fight for the middle class starts right now in congress. the confetti was still on the floor after the celebration in chicago, and house speaker john boehner was already hinting at another major fight in congress over taxes and spending. >> in order to garner republican support for new revenues, the president must be willing to reduce spending and shore up entitlement programs that are the primary drivers. mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> president obama will make a statement tomorrow in the east room.

on the vote tally in arizona and senator scott brown is hinting at his political future. first as new members make their way to capitol hill, allen west continues to fight for his seat. west has now filed a complained in st. lucie county yesterday calling for a recount of all the early ballots in the race. west trails patrick murphy by 0.58% and according to state law an automatic recount is needed only when a difference in votes is 0.5% or less so not at that threshold. west told nbc, quote, i think that we need to have the electoral process play out as it should, and then wherever the results lie, that's fine with me. but i want to make sure we have honor and integrity in that process. meanwhile, on the hill yesterday democrats held a press conference to introduce incoming members of congress and the house minority leader nancy pelosi addressed murphy as congressman elect. the only nonsitting member to speak. >>> meanwhile, out in arizona there are 340,000 ballots that have yet to be counted in the senate race between richard carmona and jeff flake. carmona did concede on election night whe
minister gordon brown. he was criticized for giving brown as a handful of dvds adds a gift in 2009 but the president has seemed far more comfortable with brown's successor david cameron. they have gone to great lengths to show their relationship is alive and well. earlier this year they took in a basketball game together in march madness but the next day the leaders took pains to prove they were on the same page politically as well as personally. >> david shares my belief that in a time of rapid change the leadership of the united states and the united kingdom is more important than ever. so, david, thank you as always for being such an outstanding ally, partner, and friend. >> as barack has said, the relationship between britain and america is the strongest that it has ever been. i believe that's because we're working together as closely as at any point in our history. >>> in a test of that alliance cameron resisted pressure from inside his own country and stuck with obama on the 2014 time line to get troops out of afghanistan. the two countries have weathered the financial crisis
in ohio, senator brown and josh mandel, and i asked senator brown point blank could he support raising the eligibility age on social security medicare and he said no. that's just not going to happen. this was a guy who just won in a swing state. how many senate democrats are in that position? we know where the president is willing to go here and it's a lot further. >> no doubt about it and some of this, as brad mentioned earlier was discussed during the debt limit negotiations last year. how many senators would be with senator brown? probably ten. the rest would have to be kicking and screaming. i think everyone understands that some of these issues have to be addressed as part of a larger agreement. you mentioned speaker boehner, the other thing to watch out for is the fact senator mcconnell, normally a kaubs, very cautious politician by nature will look over his shoulder to make sure he doesn't face a tea party challenge. all of that together, i think, makes it a toxic atmosphere and something we will have to all watch carefully. >> now you -- do you believe that the president is giv
, admirably enormous by triple that, lost women by 15 points. massachusetts, scott brown republican incumbent lost by eight points overall and 18 points among women. the great state of huo republican josh mandel lost to sherrod brown by five points overall, his margin of defeat among women, 14 points, in montana, denny reberg lost by four points and by women, lost pie ni9. the republican won by one point and did it no thanks to women, lost wom been in six points so women did not support the guy who won, they supported the democrat shelley berkley and arizona senate ref flake won by five points. arizona women picked the democrat picked richard carmona. governor's race in indiana, republican mike pence was elected won by four points. if you asked women, they did not pick him. he lost the women's voice by five points. if indiana had their way, mike pence would not be the governor of that state. women chose the democrat john greg. north carolina was one of two states president obama won in '08 and didn't win this time around. mitt romney won north carolina by three points this year but if you ask

many black and brown people, and so many white voters, by the way, don't vote for the republican party. >> yeah, i think that was well said. i think a lot of white people are turned off by this old style stuff. joanie, my question to you, my dear friend, how do you explain romney, who left the stage with such grace on election night, i'll tribute to that forever the way he did it, now going back over this again saying they bought the minority vote. this is the kind of thing he was saying during the campaign, remember. he was saying, they get rid of work requirement for welfare because he had to pay off his base. the feeding of the base. it's a theme he's still pushing. >> why does he say it, chris? because he really believes it. they really believe this is what it's all about and we've all been paid off. as cynthia says, i'm still waiting for my gifts, too. the thing that irks me to hear the two people from wisconsin speak so dismisses ively about their own population and own state -- i mean, paul ryan lost his own district, his city, his hometown, which is not a particularly urban pla
that no one likes with a brown face. that's still not going to work. latino voters vote policy. we do not vote for co-ethnic. >> i'm fascinating. interesting the difference between black and latino vote. it's a very rough parallel, but i think the relationship is about where the relationship of black voters was in 1964. >> that's right. >> the republican party was historically the home of black voters during reconstruction. the republicans nominated barry goldwater, lbj signed civil rights. the republican party learned we can never be anticivil rights. rich 5rd nixon was pro civil rights. it was the southern strategy, northern white ethnics, we're going to suddenly stoke reserchtment. >> crime. >> crime, welfare. >> remember that number. >> so the result is since 1964 there hasn't been an election where the democratic party got less than 80% of the black vote. yes, i think republicans are going to line up as a party against comprehensive immigration reform. that will be like the republicans after '64 saying we're for civil rights. the question is does the tone change the way it didn't with rep
. >> i would also say he runs against scott brown for kerry's seat and then massachusetts can get itself another governor and we have that in play also. so there is deval patrick running against scott brown. >> it all comes to massachusetts once again. >> the two posts are who replaces lisa jackson and steven chu at energy. the president, i don't think the climate change bill is in the works. but the epa has big powers over coal and emission. it will be important. i don't know who is on the short list. >> definitely. not so much jackson, but chu you're excited to see leave because it became such a part of the discourse. >> geithner is critically important here. i assume he's going to stay through the fiscal cliff in order to just see that through. but again, that's going to be a really big appointment in terms of thinking about how is this president thinking about monetary policy going forward. any sense on that? >> they've said or hinted strongly that geithner will stay on through the fiscal cliff. god, i hate that term. through the negotiations over the tax cuts and the spending seques

dressing on it find more black and brown people to say the exact same things they believe. they don't believe they need to change their positions on issues. they believe they need to change the decoration. >> i think that's right but i think what has changed is the landscape of the negotiations. and that obama holds some very ear yus and powerful cards he didn't hold before. all he has to do as people have observed, is do nothing and the tax cut expires, and the revenues increase. the fiscal cliff happens but the cliff is a misnomer. you don't drive off the cliff and plunge to your death within ten seconds. you drive off the cliff, and six months later revenues dry up, cuts go into effect. so there's some time there for negotiation. the question really isn't have the republicans change. question is has obama changed? all i have to do is sit here and the revenue comes in the door. >> don't you think -- look at payroll tax cut fight he won on that and took it to the american public. i'm of the think he learned some lessons in the first four years. >> back to what joy says you don't ne
. at the final senate debate, sherrod brown told me those changes in his mind are totally off the table. are either one of you for raising the retirement age in order to deal with medicare and social security? >> the answer is no and no. if you raise the retirement age for people, eligibility age for people, maybe if you dress like this and you're the state treasur treasurer, maybe it works but for a whole lot of working americans it doesn't. >> does it work for anybody? >> no, you don't. >> sherrod brown. he won in a swing state, folks. one more thing, "the new york times" reports some democrats are latching on to a proposal first float ed by mitt romney i order to raise taxes on the rich through a hard cap on income tax deductions. the cap is similar to proposal. instead create a bucket firm dollar amount instead of a percentage, say $35,000 a year would mean potentially more savings. finally, we made a few more things about the next year in the next 24 hours. will house minority leader nancy pelosi stay or go? pelosi has been coy about whether she plans to run for leader again. tonig
for them down ballot. this could actually create a problem. scott brown, now the defeated republican senator from massachusetts, lost to elizabeth warren convincingly a week ago today, would be a formidable candidate in a mid 2013 special election. democrats do have sort of a little bit of a cushion. they won seats last tuesday, they have a little senate cushion but i can tell you there's probably some grimaces about the idea if john kerry doesn't get state he'll get defense within senate democratic circles. >> a democratic governor who could appoint himself. >> right. >> or figure out some other way, could run for that office himself and run against scott brown and he would be a formidable candidate. they have some democrats in massachusetts who are possible candidates. but the other piece is susan rice. i have to tell you, be she is so popular with the white house, there is no question in my mind, i've never been more certain about a nomination or the intention to nominate. not just a trial balloon. but she is being blamed by many on the hill, democrats and republicans, and the whi

political problem. the notion scott brown would be a frontrunner to replace kerry if he were to tep out of that seat. the democrats have a little more cushion but not a seat that democrats would want to put in jeopardy and that's a mark against kerry. you also have someone very good in the senate in jack reed from rhode island who a lot think would be a great defense secretary. they have options. again to go to chuck hagel, strong people out there for both these jobs. they will fill them well one way or the other. >> and one point, chuck hagel is, of course, ray lahood was a republican but i think ray is probably going to leave as well. chuck hagel would be a great appointment and he's best suited for defense. wouldn't you agree with that? >> i think that's probably right. >> if you have reached a consensus on it -- >> chuck it is. >> i have decided not to leave this position for secretary of defense. i hate to say it now, ahead of the actual -- >> who would be better to take on the military end strum stril complex than you. >> we have to go to break. president obama turns mitt romney's
's left to save is his reputation. why is he throwing that way away? willie brown is here along with ashley parker of the "new york times." mayor, you were a pro, it seems that romney is not a pro. he had a good concussion speech. the president through him a big offer, a hoover commission. he whips back with this accusation the president bought the election. >> total and complete bitterness. this man obviously is wrong for the game. he has lost and he lost badly. he's embarrassed, and he's trying his best to minimize the victory. he's trying his best in some fashion to say to people it was taken from me unfairly, that i should have won, and that if there had been only my kind of people voting, i would have won. however there was some other people voting, and they're the people that you and i don't like. that's what he's saying to his people, and that's wrong. >> let's take a look at the audio from the conference just like that 47% it was recorded. let's hear romney talking to his donors in which he says in this tape the president's victory was basically the result bribes to memb
